My first experience with using electrolysis to clean Metal

A couple of weeks back I watched a video on YouTube where a guy demonstrates how to use electrolysis to clean rusty tools and parts. I have since then been curious, to see for myself how effective it really was. So I found some rusty tools in my dad’s workshop, and put together an ultra simple electrolysis setup, using one big metal nail, some standard 230 volt electrical wire, a plastic container, some kitchen salt and a 12 volt battery charger set in constant supply mode.

Here is a video of my first attempt:

This was my second try:

Here are some before and after shots of the tools I tried to clean using the electrolysis bath I ended up building:
